Pegasus Theatre is pleased to announce the plays and directors selected for Fresh Reads 2019 New Play Festival.
Romeo by Kevin Yancey
Directed by Alex Wade
Shakespeare meets Monty Python in this homage to the untalented and unstoppable would-be actors of the world! Although others see him as an obvious buffoon, Robert Cox fancies himself an actor, with a God-given gift he must share with his public. And share he does, when he miraculously snags a spot as the lead actor for a British theatrical troupe. The Bard will never seem the same to you after you’ve seen Robert Cox mangle some of history’s greatest roles!
Presented Thursday, May 16 & Saturday, May 25.
Saturday Mornings by Tammy Venable
Directed by Ben Schroth
When best friends Lauren and Jane accidentally summon a leprechaun named Lucky, they find themselves transported to a dimension eerily similar to our own, from which they can return only when they each find their one true love. The women soon discover that true love is more difficult than they thought, and that life is more than just Saturday morning cartoons.
Presented Friday, May 17 & Thursday, May 23.
Palais de Sang by Evan Ricks and Jake Mathis
Directed by Morgan Haney
The Bogarts have just bought their dream home… or will it be a nightmare? The previous owners were found dead in blood-stained sheets shortly after moving in. Everyone says the house is haunted, but nothing will deter the Bogarts from realizing their dream of home ownership! When an inept chorus of ghouls and ghosts try to change their minds, you’ll die laughing.
Presented Saturday, May 18 & Friday, May 24.Click here to purchase tickets!

Scott Nixon is a talented, versatile actor who came to us with a history of performing in Living Black & White™ shows produced by Mainstage Irving Las Colinas (MILC). It's no wonder he already had an obvious sense of the snappy style required by these productions!...
Throughout the year, we've been counting down the top 30 shows in Pegasus Theatre's 30-year history. The method of selection is quite unscientific, based on the subjective opinions of Kurt and Barb. A show might get into the top 30 because it was especially popular...
Many years ago, an actor who worked a lot at Pegasus Theatre was quoted in the newspaper as saying, "I like working at Pegasus---they feed their actors!" (Walter Hardts, RIP) It's true. We're a bit food-focused! There's actually a fine tradition of feeding actors in...
In 2002, after 17 years of producing our Living Black & White™ shows to sold-out crowds in Dallas, we took It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder! to NYC for a limited run. It was an amazing experience! Our Executive Director Barb Weinberger wrote weekly posts...
